About

Portland’s White House is a mansion wedding venue in Portland, Oregon, that offers stunning architecture, opulent surroundings, and elegant design to provide you with the comfort and luxury you want for your wedding. Capable of hosting your ceremony and reception, it is also a stylish bed & breakfast.

Facilities and capacity

Whether you are planning a large or more intimate celebration, Portland’s White House can accommodate you. In fact, the maximum capacity of the venue is 85 people, so there is plenty of room for both partners to bring everyone they want in order to enjoy the dining room and ballroom.

The Courtyard of this Greek-revival mansion is a suitable place to have your outdoor ceremony as it is set underneath stylish covering, leafy tress, and climbing plants. The luxurious living room and impressive grand staircase can also be used for the ceremony if you would prefer to have an indoor occasion.

For small elopement-style weddings, a more intimate event space can accommodate smaller guest lists for groups of 10-25.

What’s more, the guest rooms offer more elegant comfort for you and your invitees - the dark wood four-poster beds, large pastel rugs, and lamp lighting are all complemented by the large windows, ample space, and chandeliers overhead. Some of the other rooms are complete with more modern-style beds. Large shower rooms add yet more convenience to your stay.

Services offered

Included in the elopement package are a small wedding cake, fresh linens, two bottles of champagne or sparkling cider, and more. One of the other benefits of having your wedding at Portland’s White House is the fact they provide cuisine through their in-house caterer, Chef John Paulk and Mezzaluna Fine Catering.

History

Portland’s White House has a rich history. Over the years, it has seen many faces come and go, and your wedding could be the next happy ones it bears witness to. Originally owned by a wealthy baron, it was recently renovated and re-furnished by some well-known entrepreneurs. Now, it sits proudly among the locality’s landscape. Not far from Washington’s Rose Garden and the Japanese Gardens, it is within reach of several picturesque spots ideal for a newlywed stroll.

    Hosted our rehearsal dinner here and it was wonderful!

    My husband and I held our rehearsal dinner at the Portland White House this past August and we couldn't have been happier with how it turned out! The improvements that have been made to both the inside and outside are gorgeous. The staff was friendly and professional, and made our event run smoothly, which took the pressure off of me as the bride. The food wasn't only beautifully presented, but delicious! Our friends and family couldn't stop gushing about what a gorgeous and unique venue it was. It was truly a fairytale evening to kick off the wedding festivities!

    Portland's White House's reply:

    Thank you for your feedback. It was our pleasure to host. We wish you the best in this new chapter of life! Paula

    This is a gorgeous setting for a wedding. Our daughter & (now) son-in-law were married here and it was delightful. Lanning and Myra and the entire staff were great to work with and helped at every turn. The rooms are beautifully furnished and appointed. We enjoyed it so much we can't wait to return when we aren't having a wedding!

    For a beautiful, intimate and personal wedding, look no further than Portland's White House. Lanning and his staff take care of everything based on your personal preferences. The location is beautiful and unique, the staff is extremely courteous and competent and the food is amazing. We took over the entire B&B for the weekend and it was wonderful to have all of our family together beyond just the 5 hour hour wedding. Portland's White House is a truly amazing place.
